Later and later
In fact rather too late for tonight. In and out of university. Flowers dispatched. About to sneeze.
Ah yes, capitalism. I doubt whether it's dead. I suspect it's just lying down for a while till we think of something better than this current crisis to beat it with. It's going to keep a low profile, skulk about on street corners and in boardrooms. I cannot see the masses rising. I don't feel anyone itching to address me as comrade. So, no. But let's wait and see how high unemployment rises.
Even so I think we are going to be electing on the basis of good conscience, good intentions, liberalism with a certain rectitude. I'll see how I feel about that in the morning. If the revolution happens overnight wake me a little earlier.
